Using Fujifilm’s Instax Wide film, this instant camera captures moments in a wide and creative way. The ‘Wide’ in its name isn’t a description of the size of its lens, but rather the fact that it produces photos in a landscape format.
In terms of technicality, the creatives would love this instant camera for its multiple exposure function that allows the overlay of several exposures on a single image. The bulb mode is perfect for fun long exposures, night time shot and light painting, but remember to hold the shutter button down! For those who do not want the ambient light to affect exposure too much, the 1/30 shutter mode, which shoots at a fixed shutter speed of 1/30 of a second captures these moments with clarity.
Although the image quality may significantly differ from the most basic DSLRs, the clarity to skin tones and lighting is something that can’t be found in a digital camera. For users looking for battery saving cameras, this instant camera is definitely one to get!
However, the downsides of the camera are the troublesome lens thread, making the changing of lens a little more tedious than usual, and the multiple exposure function that only allows a maximum of three shots in a day before the quality gets questionable.
Unlike the usual instant cameras, the Lomo’Instant Wide has a dotted rectangular box in it to mark off where the subjects should be, making the viewfinder more accurate. With this viewfinder guideline, crappy shots of unwanted spaces can be avoided.
With its sleek leather finish, versatile functions, and ease of use, get ready to capture unforgettable moments!
